[Online] 600 Series Firmware Modifier - Version: 0.7 - Page 14

post #131 of 256
I would have definitely thought going up to the 1.212v from stock would be way higher then 1C-2C more but I do see the comments from the few members you posted, I'm just so damn scared to flash mine and see what it does...lol...I'm wimping out from seeing people bricking theirs even in this same topic thread.

I apologize smile.gif

I :)apologize

If you can't afford to replace the card in the unlikely event that it gets bricked then I wouldn't flash it.

If you do flash it, I would use one of the modded BIOS' from the other thread which has many BIOS' for many different cards available - if there is one for your card then you should have no issues whatsoever, so long as you follow the instructions on the OP. The OP has links to the software needed, and to YouTube videos explaining the process.

I've flashed my card about 8 times since August and haven't had any issues using the Firestorm software to flash the BIOS. I also used NvFlash without issue - which is what Firestorm uses to do the flashing, only Firestorm inputs the commands for you.

I've also used the KGB editor to mod my own BIOS without issue, it was easy and worked nicely.

I'm waiting to use this modifier until there are some proper instructions written up for use, as I don't want to screw up a $400 GPU and I'm not willing to use this tool with no direction.

I'd recommend using Firestorm to flash one of the BIOS' from the modded BIOS thread - make sure the card is at stock clocks and any OCing software (except for Firestorm) is closed when you do the flash. Reboot immediately after flashing. *BACKUP* the original BIOS and save it somewhere safe prior to flashing the new BIOS to your card, in case you ever want to go back to the stock BIOS, or mod the original BIOS in the future smile.gif

I just bought this card last week so maybe that's why I'm scared too. I have experience with flashing as I have done it before with other components. I'm really wanting a way to either remove or change at what temp your card will throttle clock speed and voltage because the way I see it is if I'm already hitting 68C while heavy gaming then once I get a modded BIOS with higher voltage my card will start to throttle and undevolt and it makes it hard to get a stable overclock with that happening. I get great overclock at stock and are very happy with the card but just dumbfounded on why Nvidia wanted them to throttle and undervolt ar such low temps and I say that because 70's is still cool for a card that has a thermal threshold of 98C

I'd give it a shot and see if it still throttles.

Myself and at least ten other posts I've read from members on the other thread all experienced no throttling at all after flashing our BIOS - even though the BIOS was not ever specifically modded to have such functionality.

It seems that some cards still throttle, but most do not after the volt mod...

I let my card get up to 82C in a Furmark test just to see if it would throttle when I found out other people where not throttling - I stopped at 82C for obvious reasons, but clearly the 70C throttle is gone.

I still like to keep it under 70C, so I keep the fan profile slightly more aggressive than it is stock, but it's not at all necessary to run it that cool - just keep it under 80C for long term use and most people would agree that under 80C is more than acceptable for a GPU long term.

I noticed with mine I don't get a core clock throttle until 80C but I get a voltage drop at 70C. I purposely turned down the fan speed to test up to 80C

I hope V3DT Will post exact instruction using this NVFLASH

Ah, very weird... probably something to do with the two voltage tables - I'd assume if they're both set to 1.212V then it wouldn't reduce voltage at 70C, and perhaps if the tables are different then it will drop to the lower voltage at 70C? If that's the case, this modifier will allow you to choose 1.212v for both voltage tables, I'm just not positive of exactly what modifying the tables does for the cards - hence why I'm not using this modifier until it has a proper set of instructions.

It's onto version 0.7 now and has been public for a week but we still don't have a good reference source for how to use the tool to make it do what we want it to. I'm not willing to just willy-nilly enter in some values and flash my card with it, then cross my fingers.

You are being cautious too I can see, hopefully the author of the tool will hear our cries for help and make us a reference so we can utilize his hard work!

Good luck, and I hope this modifier can fix your issue smile.gif

That's definitely possible, maybe table 1 is the normal voltage and table 2 is the drop voltage. Yeah I agree. I want to hear what these settings do before I flash and step by step instruction too. I don't have another video card and my motherboard has no onboard video so my card is all I have

No, because on most of the firmware I have looked at both are the same by default. There are only a few that have first set @ 1.212v (max) and the other set to 1.15v (normal) almost like the first set is disabled and not used. (voltage table 1) covers the first 3 values while (voltage table 2) covers the last 3 values
If you use KGB to mod the voltage it sets all 6 to the same no matter if they where the same to start with or not.

The card will throttle down if the temp goes over 70c or the power target is hit.
If I have time later, I might add a bigger range to the "max clock" drop down.

Thanks smile.gif
